My Perfect Weekend: Paul Hammock
Published 13/08/2010 | 05:00
The plan for Saturday night?
I'm being taken out for a meal by my girlfriend -- to a surprise location, no less.
Must-see gig/performance of the weekend?
AGT Rave Crew and Automatic Tasty at Twisted Pepper tonight will be a good one.
Pub/restaurant/club you couldn't live without?
At the moment, it's J Kennedy's bar on George's Quay. Great buzz and good music.
Best weekend ever?
The Mantua festival 2008 in the Alphabet Set tent, with an amazing line-up including Clark, Various Productions, t-woc and Taskforce. A brilliant weekend.
Worst weekend ever?
The worst I can think of was getting a gall stone, it was horrible. I couldn't speak because of the pain.
Favourite pre-going out ritual?
Don't have one, unless brushing my teeth and putting on my runners is a ritual.
Top post-pub munchies?
It used to be chilli cheese chips in Rick's Burgers. Recently, I've changed to the healthy option of a Zaytoon chicken kebab or any ol' slice of pepperoni pizza.
Weirdest taxi queue moment?
I've only been in Dublin three years. I missed out on all the fun of the epic taxi queues. Gutted, I am.
Best chat-up line at 2am?
"I like your face" or "can I eat your monster?" Both have worked for me in the past. I kid you not!
Your perfect date?
With my girlfriend Claire on a beach somewhere hot with a KFC bargain bucket and a four-pack of Karpackie lager. Dreamy...
